Carbon Co-op AGM – Thursday 21st May 2015

by Blog

We'd like to invite you to the Carbon Co-op AGM on Thursday 21st May 2015. A chance to find out more about what we've achieved, have your say on the activities of your society and elect (or stand for) the Committee.

  • 6.00-8.30pm, Thursday 21st May 2015
  • at Mad Lab, 36-40 Edge Street, Manchester M4 1HN

The evening includes a chance to meet other members over refreshments then engage in small group discussions to explore different elements of Carbon Co-op's work in more depth, with the formal AGM element of the evening running from 7.30pm-8.30pm.


All are welcome, only members can vote. Scroll down for key information.


Carbon Co-op is an exciting, innovative and ambitious organisation with a small staff team, but it relies on the time, enthusiasm and commitment of its volunteer committee members and we encourage members to consider standing for election at the AGM. We are especially looking for people with Human Resources or Health and Safety experience (formal training is available for both roles).

Carbon Co-op is committed to reflecting the make up and diversity of its members. We actively promote the involvement of women and members from any ethnic minorities background to stand for the committee and will assist in overcoming any barriers to this.
